Thugshop Presents – All Night Long with VALENTINO MORA
Saturdays are definitely made for dancing, so step back home into Headquarters and let Valentino Mora send you into a frenzy with his signature sound that’s deep, dark and hypnotic.
Seamlessly incorporating influences of movement, expression and soul into his production, Valentino Canzani Mora has never strayed far from this ethos since his first productions. Raised by Uruguayan parents – of which his father was a trained musician and sound engineer with a home studio; Mora was always surrounded by music and began his experimentation with it at a very young age.
Before taking on his given name, Mora had a string of releases including one LP under his previous French Fries moniker, during which time he co-curated ClekClekBoom Recordings, as well as handled the artistic direction for the label. Since then he has shifted his attention to his own label ‘IDO’ – or – Intercontinental Dance Organization. Drawing inspiration from the early ambient house scenes, IDO centres around melting percussion and modular synthesizers into a rhythmic migration of hypnotic soundscapes.
Furthermore, IDO is Mora’s outlet for researching alternative anxiety relief methods and meditation through sound. He recently started curating a compilation series based on this concept called “Transcendental Movements” featuring 10 international artists. He reveals a more techno and experimental sound on the labels Dement3d and Spazio Disponibile, with a full-length experimental album coming out in 2020.
On the decks of Upstairs, Thugshop’s very own – Gabriel Descantis & Ed Howard.
Wander Upstairs as the duo brings the bright, feel-good, swinging house tracks to lift your spirits with a mixed bag of house and disco beats.
